The Peaks

This song is by Everything Everything and appears on the album Arc (2013).

So they came, one by one,
There was never any warning.
Bled out the stuck pig fields like it was gonna last long.

And I saw the whole rise,
I saw the whole thing fall, down
And all flesh spun,
A lattice of it reachin' out.

And I'm left holding my head looking down at every grave,
And all millennia pass, just a flicker in a wave.

And I've seen more villages burn than animals born,
I've seen more towers come down than children grow up.

Cross the peaks, cross the marsh, cross your fingers for the last time.
And pass out the blame to someone and never step it up side.
Nobody's asking "Why is your head bent down so?"
There's trillions lost, I'm dreaming of a different time.

I'm left holding my head
Looking down at every grave
And all millennia pass, just a flicker in a wave.

And I've seen more villages burn than animals born,
I've seen more towers come down than children grow up.

I've seen biomass swarm back and forth across the globe.
They try all manner of things, just to keep it all afloat.

And I've seen more criminals hung than innocents walk,
I've seen more horrors made real than dreamers wake up!

Come now, Decider, sit down beside me,
Tell me my world is gone!
